The Jamaica Gleaner reviews the book Immigration Essays by Sybil Baker:
This book could be categorised as experimental literature as it is, in parts, a travelogue narrative, an exposé on social injustice, focusing on racial and migrant discrimination, and even a literary critique, using Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, Wide Sargasso Sea, James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time, and other books to examine the idea of the wanderer that migrants, be they refugees or not, encapsulate. (Ann-Margaret Lim)
Break-up literature is discussed in The Guardian:
My personal breakup canon includes classics such as Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair, Jean Rhys’s Voyage in the Dark (though really any of her novels could count) and certainly Wide Sargasso Sea – which is perhaps less a breakup narrative than the story of a woman so forcibly imprisoned in her heartbreak that she will burn the whole house down (a theme emerges) to articulate her rage and demand her freedom. (Leslie Jamison)
Look at the first page of La Gazzetta Dello Sport (Italy) which talks about tonight's Inter-Juventus football match.

Il Corriere Della Sera (Italy), the Daily Mail and other news outlets publish how the Turkish government has banned (it can just be read by adults) Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls by Francesca Cavallo and Elena Favilli which, as you know, included the Brontë sisters.
